"Artists and Creatives"

We are interested in feedback from all self-identified artists, musicians and creatives who have a sincere commitment to their art or creative work in any and all of its forms. If you consider your work to be a form of art or creative expression, then we probably will too.

Individuals need not make any income from their art or creative work, or pursue their practice full time. We consider individuals to have a commitment to their art or creative work if they have or are developing a body of work, have studied or are actively training in their art/creative work, have a desire to grow as an artist or work professionally in their creative field and/or are actively engaged in the creation and expression of their art.
